I first made the wood scribe with the pen, it was a little tricky to get the pen flush and I was a bit disappointed as I found it not that convenient. I made a second one, just a ruler in a block of wood, easy to build and I like to be able to read the mensurations. I get a winner :)

Great idea with the metal ruler. Do you use a scribing knife or just a sharp pencil with it?

I also like the idea of the ruler. It goes to the top of my to do lost for sure.

You need a wingnut on it too for convenience.

I use a pen most of time but a scribing knife works too.
The wing nut would be more convenient,you’re right, I’ll modify this soon.

I like the ruler, nice simple and works.

cutting a groove in the face allowing the pen to recess halfway permits you to zero the point with the face
